How about as one of the first bipartisan acts of the next administration, we have a Congress led conference, meaning under oath, to understand the temperature record data everyone is looking at, including understanding the raw, measured data on land and by satellites, and the different versions of the data sets over time, including any adjustments that have been made to them.

That seems like a reasonable place to start, how much warming has there really been and when.
